TODAY’S LOOK | VALENTINE
I had a simple makeup in mind for Valentine’s Day,…
I hope you’re having a great Friday! We are dealing with a cloudy & cold day, here in Bucharest. But it’s a perfect day for the third look using Jeffree Star Liquid Lipstick.
This shade is called Abused and it’s a purpled toned navy blue. I’ve been looking for a shade like this for a long time and as soon as I found out about these lipsticks, I just had to own this lip colour.
I like that it’s matte and also it’s highly pigmented. The only down side is the application. Even though the applicator is designed to make it easy, you must be very careful when applying these dark colours on the lips.
If you mess up, act quickly before it dries, because after that it becomes a bit difficult to correct. But not impossible
I wanted a simple eye makeup for this look, because I wanted to make this lipstick wearable. It’s really bold and if you choose to wear it on a night out, it should be the star of the look.
I used a blending brush, added a bit of brown eyeshadow to the crease and then blend it really well. On the eyelid I used a shimmery white eyeshadow, applied with an eyeshadow brush.
Tip: to make the eyeshadow more pigmented, wet your brush with thermal water or makeup setting spray.
I barely used mascara, just a little bit on the tips of the lashes and I highlighted the inner corners of the eyes.
I hope you like it, try it with the boldest lipstick that you have at home and I’ll leave all products used below.
